"Stir and Season" Saturday

"Stir and Season" Saturday

Officially basketball season is over and soccer practice for two of my kids have begun. Which means 4 practices during the week....WHICH means "mom" needs to be planning meals! So this is when I rekindle my "love affair" with my crock pot.

This is SUCH a simple recipe but oh so very yummy!

Salsa Chicken Soft Taco

In the morning take 4 to 5 boneless skinless chicken breast and put them in the crock pot; Pour over an entire jar of mild salsa (your favorite); Cook on low for 8 hours;

After 8 hours open crockpot and cut up chicken....it should just shred apart with the touch of the knife;

Now I take that chicken and quickly drain it (my kids freight over anything that is 'runny'); put back in crockpot;

Then with that chicken make family soft chicken tortillas(soft taco);

warm tortillas~chicken from crockpot~cheese~sour cream~shredded lettuce~chopped tomatoes


Roll up and enjoy! So easy and quick!

{I serve with rice on the side and fresh fruit}

Enjoy~

Hey Sandy this is one of my favorite tools in the kitchen for a busy day meal. Try the green enchilla sauce sometime with a boneless pork loin. I sometimes throw in a cut up onion, chopped garlic clove, and a tsp. or 2 of cumin.

I would be interested to hear anymore ideas on really easy healthy crock pot meals.

Ben threw away my slow cooker because it cracked (snarl). Think I could do this in a dutch oven?

This is such a great recipe and idea--I have never thought of it before. I'm always looking for inexpensive and easy meal ideas--and always looking for a way to use my crock pot! I don't know how one would get along without it!
I like the idea that another comment says about using pork. Have a wonderful weekend!

Delish! Sometimes I'll read a recipe that has ingredients that aren't available on this side of the Earth, but this one I can manage. I'm getting a collection of recipes together for Winter, like a good ol' Mama Bear!!!;)- even though it's still qhite hot over here, and no sign of cooling, just yet. I loved catching up on your recent posts, and I'm with you about crayon drawing - love it! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend with your precious ones. Naomi
